Remotely Kill Windows NT Processes


The Windows NT Resource Kits, both NT4 and Windows 2000 Professional, include a
remote kill process commandline utility rkill.exe . To
be able to kill a process or processes running on a remote server, you must have
admin privileges and the rkillsrv.exe service must be
installed and running. There is also a gui version of the client tool, wrkill.

Examples of commandline syntax :


rkill view \\servername

to get the process list on servername


kill \\servername pid

to kill process pid on servername


rkill \\servername process.exe

to kill a process by name on servername
